Devon: A Double Major Story

What Can You Do with a Liberal Arts Degree? Everything!

Did you know most employers prefer to hire liberal arts majors? In today’s global economy, where flexibility and innovation are king, liberal arts majors have what it takes to think big and lead. Even better news: it may not matter which major you choose. “Demonstrated capacity to think critically, communicate clearly and solve complex problems” are all more important than your choice of major. (Source: 2013 American Association of Colleges and University survey)

So, following your passions could be a great starting point to a life filled with possibilities.
